I unfortunately couldn’t make it out to see Roc Marciano’s show at the Highline Ballroom on Thursday night (Rap Dad duty called), but I had a feeling it was gonna be one of those nights you don’t want to miss. Turns out I was right. See footage above of Busta Rhymes’ guest appearance on stage, where he gave one of the biggest public displays of respect I’ve ever seen in hip-hop—calling Roc one of his Top 5 MCs and explaining for close to four minutes why he’s truly a Rap God. Shouts to my boy Eric Diep for the footage.
And below, see flicks from the show courtesy of Photo Rob, featuring Meyhem Lauren, DJ Muggs, Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, Westside Gunn, Action Bronson, Big Body Bes, Knowledge The Pirate, V Don, Lil Eto, Smoke DZA and Jazz.
Yo Jazz, what is that sweatshirt you’re wearing?!? Salute to Roc Marciano and everyone who was involved in this historic night—this crop of talent represents hip-hop’s finest.
Action and Meyhem hit the park in Queens to experience the local Colombian food scene.
Meyhem Lauren links with Roc Marciano for a fire track off his forthcoming DJ Muggs-produced project.

Here’s footage of Conway & Westside Gunn performing a new Alchemist-produced banger during their Griselda On Steroids Tour stop Thursday night at Webster Hall, with a cameo by Raekwon. This shit is crazy.
More footage from the show, including guest appearances and performances by Jadakiss, Styles P, Prodigy, Meyhem Lauren, Mach-Hommy and Roc Marciano HERE and HERE.
Westside Gunn sits down with Peter Rosenberg on Real Late…
Here are a pair of new Meyhem Lauren songs off his latest project Piatto D’Oro. Listen to his Large Professor-produced joint “Not Guilty” up top, and an Alchemist-produced collabo with his right-hand man Action Bronson “Dragon V.S. Wolf” below.
Bronson season continues. Check the ill live cypher above on Whoo Kid’s show with Meyhem Lauren, Alchemist, and Wayne Brady?!? And some new Stones Throw x Bam Bam shit below…
By the way, you can watch three new episodes of Fuck, That’s Delicious on Viceland’s website now. They’re all great.
Automatic post anytime I see Roc Marciano and Action Bronson on the same track. Listen to Meyhem Lauren’s new one “Bonus Round,” featuring Roc and Bam Bam, with Harry Fraud on the boards and Big Body Bes with the shit-talk. Beautiful.
